Chamber Music:

The Music of Friends

In our modern, fast-paced world, it's a treat to sit down with friends and enjoy an hour or two together.  It's more of a treat if each friend plays an instrument, and you can all make music.  And it's more special yet, if you play music that gives each friend a unique, individual part.  That's  what chamber music is all about--individual parts, in a friendly setting, making music together.

  In our modern, fast-paced world, we may not have musical friends near us to share time together.  And with the new perspective of the pandemic, gathering in person is not always safe, or possible.  

Synchronous HausMusik gives us a way to play chamber music anyway!   We (the "home team") provide a core ensemble and invite you (the "away team") to play alongside us via online meeting software, as we explore the marvelous music of friends. 

How to connect with us

We are indebted to Zoom for providing a platform that allows us to stream sound, and to connect in real time with our "away team" of players.  However, thanks to latency, we can't actually play together with all mics on.  So the Home Team broadcasts, and the Away Team plays with mics muted.  You can hear us, and we can see you.

Synchronous HausMusik is free, donations gratefully accepted.
